Turkey Meatloaf with Spicy Tomato Glaze – Recipe!

Print Friendly

I used to cook for private clients a few years back and deliver fresh meals to their homes nightly.  Turkey Meatloaf Night was a big hit and I was always swamped with orders.  Meatloaf is true comfort food and it brings me back to my childhood dining with my siblings at the dinner table.

This Turkey Meatloaf with Spicy Tomato Glaze is super special because of its light texture – much different compared to meatloaf made with beef or pork.  The glaze is cooked on the stove top and half is mixed into the meat to add a little extra flavor.  The rest of the slightly spicy sauce is spread on top of the meatloaf.

I think you will really enjoy this recipe and it makes great sandwiches the next day too.  Just slice the chilled meatloaf and place it between two whole grain pieces of bread with a little mayo.  How great are meatloaf memories?


2 1/2 pounds ground turkey

2 teaspoons fennel seed

2 teaspoons onion powder
